The 2021 April Fools Ride is BACK!
Please join Bike Walk Baldwin Saturday July 10th, 2021 as we celebrate the 15th annual April Fools Ride! Featuring a variety of routes, climb and fun, there is a great ride option for everyone! This year, choose from scenic 31, 63, and 80 mile routes and enjoy 3 fully provisioned rest stops (80 mile route hits 1 stop twice) and SAG support. For this year’s after ride meal, each rider will receive a $5 Milly Money lunch voucher to use in downtown Milledgeville and choose from many great restaurants! Just come back to registration to claim or purchase your Milly Money and enjoy some good Milledgeville eats…are you ready to ride???
Due to continued concerns over COVID-19, the ride format this year will again be a show-and-go format to minimize crowds at registration and rest stops. Registration will remain open from 7:00am to 9AM to allow riders more time to space out. Pre-registered riders will be emailed a copy of the waiver form. Please have this form signed and ready to drop off when you arrive so we can avoid long lines at registration. For riders who want to do the longer routes and get an even earlier start than 7am, you can sign the waiver and email it back to us, then start whenever you like. Rest stop schedules are posted on the web site so you can plan your start time based on your rest stop needs.
Registration ride pricing includes ride t-shirt, light breakfast, SAG and a $5 Milly Money lunch voucher: $30 for Friends of Bike Walk Baldwin* & students, $40 for all others.
*Become a Friend of Bike Walk Baldwin by offering an annual show of support. Your minimum donation of $25 gets a $10 discount off any two Bike Walk Baldwin events. You may donate at registration via PayPal or cash/ check. We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization; all donations are 100% tax-deductible.
Early registration pricing, as well as ride t-shirt orders end on June 26th at midnight. After that date, ride price goes up $10. We will not be ordering any extra ride t-shirts this year. So if you want a shirt, please register early. Onsite registration will open on Saturday morning, July 10th at 7:00AM. Please bring cash or a check as we will not have a way to process credit cards.
